Thanks to your generous support, the infant mortality rate in Baltimore has dropped to an historic low of 8.4 from when we were founded in 1991. Your contributions of time, talent and funds have allowed us to invest in Baltimore’s families for 25 years and be part of the communities we serve.
We work in communities with rates of infant mortality at least 1½ times the US national average and high rates of other negative perinatal outcomes such as low birth weight, preterm birth, and maternal morbidity and mortality. We do this in order to address the needs of high-risk women and their families before, during, and after pregnancy.
Your contributions have allowed us to invest in Baltimore’s families for 25 years and to be part of the communities we serve. The subtlety and magic of community is that it doesn’t feel like a public health intervention. It feels like life.
